. i did that. i went to new york. then i moved to los angeles in 2003. one of the things about moving to l.a. from the east coast when you are 30 years old is that all of the sudden, you feel very divorced from this east coast sort of traditional upbringing. that happened to me when i came out here. i was living in a part of the city that felt very new. you know, dated back really to the 1950s, and i felt very detached all of the sudden. that thing i took for granted growing up in a log cabin, living next to amish people, ect., ect., and all the sudden, i needed that in my life. one day, i was in the shower, loofaing, and my wife bursts into the bathroom, just out of nowhere says, if you could go back to college now and major in any subject, what would it be? i said, well, that's a good question. what would i do? i burst out history. even as i said it, i didn't quite put all the pieces together. i didn't quite understand what it was, but i felt with was missing in my life that i needed to learn about the past, that this would somehow make me a better person and citizen. not that long

of my favorites. this is a "los angeles times" headline covering the welfare attack the first panel discussed repeated by rick santorum of the republican convention. this club got a lot of play in the blogosphere because people found a very refreshing that the times was running to recall what santorum to say that it was inaccurate so it doesn't say repeat welfare attack called inaccurate by fact checkers or controversial welfare claim. there is no punch pulling on their race, very direct. this is a person making a claim and it is inaccurate. this is the kind of coverage we don't often see but it's quite powerful and has the potential to make politicians think twice to have the conversation bill was talking about on the first panel to we want to go over this line. fact checking isn't magic. journalism can't completely reverse the incentives politician's face but on the margin it can be quite effective. next slide. what else constructively can the journalists to? this is an example that might be especially helpful to the reporters. you don't write your own head lines. uav don't have c

provides abortions. when i was visiting the planned parenthood affiliate in los angeles, it happens to be a day when they were providing abortions. now, the doctor in charge of the clinic whispered to me, as we toured, that, of course, friday's was the day that they offered a second. well, i had to ask her if they had ever encountered people outside the clinic trying to stop men from entering. [laughter] it's just something to think about. now, one in five women in america use or have used planned parenthood services, much to the benefit of men also. but all over the country, conservative politicians try to outdo each other in calling for the destruction of planned parenthood. do they really have no concern for the millions of women who rely on planned parenthood for basic health care? and yet the contraception is a basic health care. it is essential to the health of women and the well being of their families. if a woman cannot control her reproductive choices, she cannot control her life. every single republican in the house of representatives has voted to end title x, family plann
